Studies on product disassembly for remanufacturing using strategic perspective have been overlooked in current studies. This research uses a strategic approach to examine how product, process and organisational design affect disassembly strategies among different remanufacturers. Three companies that consist of two automotive and one jet engine remanufacturers have been selected as subjects. A case study approach using qualitative data has been adopted to examine how remanufacturers design their disassembly strategies. Our analysis revealed that the two major factors influencing disassembly strategies are product complexity and the stability of supply of cores.
